On Saturday September 21, the second phase of Razavi Hospital in Iran's northeast city of Mashhad was inaugurated in an official ceremony on Saturday. The new building has 40 thousand square meters of space with the most advanced facilities and medical equipment. But what makes it really important is its state-of-the-art nuclear medicine department.
US and some of its allies have long imposed sanctions against Iran over its nuclear energy program which they claim has military aspects. Iran denies such claims as baseless saying that its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity and also producing medicines for cancer patients. The new phase of Razavi hospital is one of the medical centers that receive nuclear medicines from Iran's Atomic Energy Organization.
With the most advanced nuclear medicine department in Iran, Razavi hospital can provide services to cancer patients from all over the country. It can also be an ideal destination for medical tourism. The new phase of Razavi hospital has seven advanced operation rooms in which surgeons can communicate with other operation rooms all over the world.
The hospital can accept between 50 to 100 patients every day at its nuclear medicine department. This is the second major medical project developed and financed by Astan-e Qods-e Razavi. The charitable foundation is planning for a major project to establish a health complex with various hospitals and medical facilities near Mashhad.
